The Console Wars are and have always been hilarious. Victory, triumph of a one consumer product over another based on some kind of imagined spiritual superiority, is just plain silly. Yet you can see why players have been flaming one another from the beginning, jabbering ceaselessly in comments sections, schoolyards, and select pubs the world over about what box is better than the other. Video games and the machines to play them on are expensive, and it makes sense that folks want to defend their selection when they can have only one. Over the past eight years of E3 action, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 camps have bitterly cursed one another, standing by their chosen machines while Sony and Microsoft have raked in the cash. The biggest winners, fully able to luxuriate in E3's announcements, in this wholly arbitrary rivalry? Those lucky sons-of-guns with both consoles sitting under the TV.
With E3 2014 likely to be the last stand for any straggling PS3 and Xbox 360 games, we'd like devote the sixth week of our giveaway extravaganza to those peacemakers that gave the very idea of console wars the stink eye. Here are 14 games, some for Xbox 360 and some for PS3, to warm your gaming panoply a final boost.
